Chilling out with an EDM.

The iMed wire EDM machine is configured for continuous-duty production of parts such as aerospace components, medical instruments, and implants. It is suited for the production of surgical instruments, needles, stainless steel tubing and rods, turbine engine vanes and blades, orthopedic implements, dental tools and devices, laboratory equipment components, and PCD tooling/ tips. It uses 0.004" to 0.012" standard brass wire and comes with a heavy-duty anti-electrolysis power supply, an inverter-controlled DI chiller, AC servo-controlled water level for the work tank, and a FANUC 310i-WA CNC. The control provides nano interpolation, and comes with a 15" color touch-screen monitor, split-screen graphics with drawing capabilities, interactive parts/maintenance assistance, multiple USB ports, and ethernet connectivity. It comes with a thermally insulated cast Meehanite base, and heavy-duty ball screws for the X- and Y-axes which are double-anchored and encapsulated to prevent contamination. A 35-pound wire spool capacity is standard. Methods EDM, Booth 1205
